He’s an avid traveler himself, including on his three (yeah, three!) motorcycles. When he’s not gallivanting around the world, he’s really, really, really serious about helping healthcare professionals find their passion, and, in his own words would do “anything short of illegal activities” to keep them happy.
He has described himself as being “incapable of sitting still for more than an hour,” which makes him perfect for his job where multitasking is the stock in trade. His best advice for new travelers: “never hesitate to ask me about anything… I mean it. I’m always ready to answer questions. Let me do the leg work.”
Take the heart of a true Texan, ixnay the boots, the Country Music taste and the drawl, and you’ll end up with Alisha. A traveler (and marine biologist) at heart, she’ll keep her promises to her clients as long as it doesn’t get her locked in jail. That’s a good policy to abide by.
She’s the daughter of a nurse and a healthcare nut. Before finding her way to advising at Focus Staff, she was a detention officer (nightstick and all!), so she knows how to handle tough situations. Her advice to healthcare pros: “Pretend we’re on a date… Tell me everything!”
He’s been on the Focus Staff team for more than four years, but came into the industry because some friends “said it was pretty cool.” He’s found his stride and, in his own words, “would do anything… ANYTHING!!! *within reason.” for his travelers. His advice to healthcare pros: “when in doubt, call me. I’ve always got your back.”
This young’un, went to an incredible school in Dallas: Booker T Arts… which naturally lead her to our artsy environment—I mean, have you SEEN our office? Also, she loves spicy food and her super adorbs dog, Lark.
Line up all the things she loves and here’s what you’ll find: The Oldies, movies, Agatha Christie, keeping a nice clean AP report and NOT sweets. Like, seriously no sweets.
With Focus Staff for six years, this U.S. Marine was built for a challenge. Which is why he’s so good at what he does: helping health care professionals find their perfect 13-week assignments and backing them up the whole way. Oh, and if you’re ever in a pizza eating contest with him, prepare to lose.
This travel-lover found her way to the perfect job after being an office manager. She’s much better suited to working with Focus Staff. And her dog and cat (who get along just fine) both agree. Her advice to travelers: time management and organization are the keys to a happy life.
Having the mind of a marketer is all about inspiration. Get this girl a weekend, a backpack, a compass and a long mountain pass, and she’ll come back clear-headed and ready to create and market ALL DAY.
She’s been in customer service her whole career, so moving to Focus Staff was a no brainer. If you meet her, it’ll be pretty clear right up front what motivates her: her incredible daughter, Marlee. Another thing you’ll find is that her motto, “whatever it takes!” is the real deal.
She’s a force of nature, always fed by her “love” of Starbucks (read: possible clinical addiction). She got into the industry for the job but has stayed because she fell in love with helping people find that perfect fit. Her advice to travelers: “be open to different career blueprints. Embrace surprise.”
She’s been with Focus Staff for more than eight years, and got into the field because she thought helping people explore the country would be a fascinating way to live life. Exploring is in her blood. She moved to Dallas at 20 with nothing in her pockets. Her best advice is to “ask as many questions as you can! I have or will find the answers!”
This Speech Path major, who moved a ton when she was young—like, eight times—takes her healthcare professional background, love for travel and adventure, and mashes them up to find unique and fulfilling placements for her travelers. But beware, she only tolerates annoying noises from her pet basset hound, Barbara.
He’s the man who started it all at Focus Staff. An avid outdoor fan, when not captaining the ship, you’ll probably find Kyle trekking through the woods or running a tough mudder. But whatever he’s doing—helping healthcare professionals on their journey, coaching the team, or competing in some ridiculous fashion—he’s all-in. Oh, and he was born on a leap day, so that makes him roughly 9 years old.
Marissa is a go-getter: originally hired for data entry, she was promoted within a few weeks. But don’t let that fool you, she’s a hard-core alien buff, so we’re assuming one day she’ll be abducted and won’t show up for work. She, in her own words “would go beyond to make an HCP happy, but won’t rub their feet.” So, get that somewhere else!
She’s a staffing agency veteran, but it wasn’t until she came to Focus Staff that she found her real home. She’s a true believer that you should have an advocate the whole way through the process, not just a salesperson who “sells” you on an assignment. Oh, and she married the boy she met at 8 years old.
He’s been with Focus Staff for four years, but having owned and sold his own staffing agency, knows this industry inside and out. He’s a no-bullsh*tter from birth, but in his own words, is passionate about staffing because “I like the challenge of finding people jobs they don’t even know exist.”
He’s Texas-born and raised (good man!), and wishes he had MORE time in the day to provide better customer service. To be fair, his travelers don’t say the same about him. But above all, honesty—even when it hurts—is most important to him. Well, that and classic cars.
Sadie joined Focus Staff to be a part of something great… and to learn new skills (no, not the nunchuck kind). Her excellent multi-tasking and organization are helping her change the perception that this industry is stressful. Her best advice, be a good listener and don’t be rude or lazy.
This self-proclaimed “walking melting pot”—Mexican, Cambodian, Laotian, Thai, and a lot more—always wanted to be a doctor, fascinated with gore and bloody scenes on TV. But alas, ’twas not for her. But Focus Staff is the perfect fit. Her best advice? Live life outside of the box. YOLO, right?
She actually started here a temp, but quickly became invaluable to our operations, and is now Operations Manager. This southerner (ask her to say “bless your heart” sometime… seriously, it’s amazing!) really knows how to get things done around the office, which includes making our healthcare pros happy every… single… day!
Teddy is a tech-head, gamer, (whatever PUBG is), snowboarder and golfer. So, yeah, his interests are pretty varied. But one thing you will 100% relate to, he will do anything in his power to help his travelers succeed, as he put it, “literally anywhere, anytime.”
He graduated Premed, but decided that helping healthcare professionals on their journeys was a better fit… not financially, of course. He’s a constantly-active guy, playing basketball, flag football, and on the Focus Staff softball team. He’s happy “only when my traveler is truly fulfilled.”
